Ed Miliband: Britain is a “Christian Country”

And lo, it was Eastertide, and David spake unto the Church Times that Britain was indeed a Christian country. And it came to pass that godless pinkos wrote unto the Telegraph that David had sinned, for he had offended them. Despite 59% of Britons describing themselves as Christians in the most recent census, Britain having an established church and the Head of State being nominally still the Defender of the Anglican Faith.

The signatories to the letter – among them Labour donor Ken Follett, Labour peers Baroness Whittaker and Lord O’Neill, Labour-supporting QC Geoffrey Bindman, former Welsh Labour AM Lorraine Barrett, Denis MacShane’s ex Joan Smith, and Polly Toynbee – are very angry about Dave using the phrase “Christian country“. Apparently saying so “fosters alienation and division in our society“. For some reason they did not feel the need to write a letter to a national newspaper ten days ago, when Ed “One Nation” Miliband on a visit to Israel said that Britain was quote

“a Christian country”

Using religion for partisan political ends? Who would do such a thing?

Nigel Farage, who cynics think is the real catalyst for Cameron’s recent remarks on traditional Christian values, has just told viewers of ITV’s Daybreak “I’ve been saying for years that Britain should be more muscular in its Christianity.” Cameroon modernisers and their friends in the commentariat think that Dave talking about faith will impress older UKIP voters put off by the government’s advocacy of gay marriage. Shows their cluelessness…

      With China set to be the world’s most populace Christian country within a decade or two, it is a good idea if the British start making it clear to our business partners that we are still people they will want to do business with. The Chinese people I speak to find the British left’s habit of pandering to militant islamism very off-putting indeed.

      Ophelia Cox says:

      In principle Christianity has nothing to say regarding homosexuality since mainstream Christianity believes that the “New Covenant” over-rides the Rabbinic Laws of the old testament.

      Christians are, therefore, governed by just the 10 commandments and the 11th Commandment: “Love one another”. No mention of homosexuality at all.

      Sadly, the mainstream Christian churches have chosen to ignore this earlier decision and have dipped back into the old testament in order to condemn gayness for the sake of the low-IQ African churches.

      Given that 85% of the population have no issue with gayness, the church’s open hositility to gayness for no good liturgical reason will do the church nothing but harm until inevitably they are forced to bow to reality.

      Of course, the church could ban gay marriage by reason that the church doesn’t believe that gay couples would make the best parents. This wouldn’t require the back up of the bible since marriage isn’t really mentioned in the New Testament. A slight changing of wording of the marriage ceremony would make the Christian ban on gay marriage seem far less contraversial – people in support of gayness still have disquiet about the idea of two bum-bandits raising young boys.

        Jude 1 v 7 explains why the OT destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah for fornicating should serve as a NT warning to Christians.

        The prohibition on murder, theft, adultery, etc was not lifted, rather reinforced, by the NT. Neither has been the prohibition on homosexuality.

        BTW a lot more than 15% of the nation are most certainly not ok with gayness, as will be evidenced by voter reaction to gay marriage in the forthcoming elections.

      Some of the wisest words ever written. Known many devout christians over the years.

      Always after money, borrowed items never returned, seen several commit insurance fraud, use the church gossip network to demonise their enemies.

      There is also a network within the church that does nothing but advise followers how to abuse the immigration and asylum system.

      Don’t trust them, don’t look for their votes, keep them out of politics, CofE is just as looney as the labour party.

There are times when it feels like this country has been handed over to the muslims. In the Midlands, that’s pretty much the case already.
